When To Reset The Lexus Tire Pressure Sensor

You’ll need to reset the Lexus tire pressure sensor whenever the tires are rotated or get filled with air.

However, if you get the tires or wheels replaced, then new tire pressure warning valves and transmitters must also be installed. When this happens, new ID codes will have to be registered into the tire pressure warning computer. Then, the sensor in the tire pressure warning system will have to be reset.

How To Reset The Tire Pressure Sensor In Your Lexus

In order to the reset the tire pressure sensor inside your Lexus, you’ll want to complete the following steps…

  1. Park the car in a safe spot and turn the engine off.
  2. Fill the tires to the appropriate air pressure. You’ll want to do this when the tires are “cold” or when the vehicle has been sitting for at least a few hours.
  3. Turn the engine switch to Ignition On mode.
  4. Press and hold the reset switch until the tire pressure warning light blinks slowly three times.
  5. Wait a few minutes, and then turn the engine off.

When the Tire Pressure Warning System May Not Work

Once the above steps are completed, you’ll want to drive around for a bit to see if the light turns off. If it’s been about 20 minutes and the light blinks for a minute and then stays on, then there’s a malfunction with the system.

There are instances when the tire pressure warning system may not work properly. For instance, if the above-mentioned ID code doesn’t get registered, then the warning system won’t work correctly from the get-go.

Other examples of the tire pressure warning system not working accurately include:

  • Outfitting your vehicle with non-genuine Lexus wheels
  • Replacing a tire with a non-OEM one
  • If tires not equipped with tire pressure warning valves and transmitters are used
  • If there’s a lot of ice and snow on the vehicle, especially around the wheels and wheel housings

Performance of this warning system can also be affected if you’re near a TV tower, electric power plant, gas station, or other facility that generates strong radio waves. If the information isn’t displayed correctly from the radio wave conditions, then continue driving. Once you get away from those interferences, the system should function as normal.
